Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrosis virus (BmNPV), a natural pathogen of great economic significance in sericulture, has been exploited to generate recombinant baculoviruses harbouring genes of choice and achieve high level expression of cloned foreign genes. The BmNPV-based expression system offers the advantage of using the larval host rather than the insectderived cell lines for economic large-scale synthesis of biomolecules. Since commercial rearing of silkworms is routinely practised, a part of… CONTINUE READING
